Everyone's Famous in a Small Town
This last weekend I went home to my hometown for our annual "Strawberry Festival". Our claim to fame is the "World's Largest Strawberry Shortcake". Our town makes one the size of the back of a Semi Trailer and then they parade it through town & the Strawberry Princesses serve it up at the Carnival afterward. This year I rode in the parade on a float for "former Strawberry Princesses" and my younger brother carried a banner for a local politician.
This is why I am partially obsessed with strawberries :)
There are a ton more past princesses than this! I was the only one from my year that rode this year.
My dear friend KaryAnn talked me into riding on the float. I'm glad she did! It was fun & it was a beautiful day for a parade :)
Me with KaryAnn when she was a princess is 2010.

Necklace: Bauble Bar // Shoes: old (Mervyns--doesn't exist anymore!) // Sunglasses: Kohls
My mom found these shoes for me in the children's section at Mervyn's (which no longer exists!) when I was on court. I bust them out once a year for strawberry festival :) One of the benefits of having small feet.
I just love wearing Tiaras ;)
My favorite picture from the weekend :)
Do you have any odd small town traditions?
Hope you had a lovely weekend & Happy Monday!
